I come from the business sector where I spent 20 plus years in Sydney, Australia. I have four TESOL qualifications which are from the UK which include Advanced Business English and IELTS for Teachers.
I have been teaching English now for over 10 years.
I most enjoy helping students with their English so as they can move on to the next step of their careers or to advance professionally.
I am a published author of a self-help motivational book "One Man's Take on Beating Alcoholism" which was published in the USA in 2007. I am very effective in motivating my students and I take a genuine interest in them, their goals and their dreams.
English for occupational and academic purposes are my areas of greatest interest. I take a structured approach to help you achieve your goals in English. Let me show you how.
I am trained in and use the communicative approach which is based on the idea that learning language successfully comes through having to communicate real meaning. When learners are involved in real communication, their natural strategies for language acquisition will be used, and this will allow them to learn to use the language faster and more effectively.
I also employ the use of music and song as it promotes pedagogical diversity and contributes to effective learning, especially in regards to pronunciation, fluency, listening comprehension, memorization of vocabulary and grammatical structures, and cultural awareness.
